I’m thrilled to announce, after many years in the making, my first book has been officially published! Ballet For Me And You started as a simple document that I passed out to my students’ parent to help them understand what their children were learning in ballet class. In the past few years, this simple document expanded into a iBook with poetic verses, a guide for parents, step by step images, and quizzes. As a dance educator, my goal has been to spread my passion and knowledge of dance. Through this book series, I am excited about continuing this mission. Ballet For Me And You is now available for your iPad on the iBookstore for $2.99.
